Good progress this morning as we race to catch the afternoon flood into San Francisco Bay. We struggled through the night to keep the rig and vane in balance as we entered the coastal weather. The fog feels almost like drizzle. Plenty of fuel left and we're within helicopter range. It seems as though we're going to make it.
